NEWSTALK 1010: CHRIS PRATT + Taylor Kitsch + CHLOE TRAICOS + CLARE POOLEY

This week on the Richard Crouse Show we meet Chris Pratt and Taylor Kitsch. You know Chris Pratt as the star of the “Jurassic World” franchise and as Star-Lord in Marvel Studios’ “Guardians of the Galaxy.” Taylor Kitsch is a Canadian actor, known for his work as Tim Riggins in the NBC television series “Friday Night Lights,” and starring in “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” “Battleship,” “Lone Survivor” and for playing David Koresh in the miniseries “Waco.”

They are teamed to talk about their new series on Amazon Prime, “The Terminal List.” The series follows James Reece, played by Pratt after his entire platoon of Navy SEALs is ambushed while on a covert mission. Reece returns home to his family with conflicting memories of the event and questions about his culpability. As new evidence comes to light, Reece discovers dark forces working against him, endangering not only his life but the lives of those he loves. Kitsch is Ben Edwards, Reese’s best friend and fellow Navy Seal.

We’ll also meet Chloe Traicos. You know her from the black comedy “The Righteous Gemstones,” a series created by Danny McBride that follows a famous yet dysfunctional family of televangelists. You can find the show on Crave here in Canada. Chloe played Gloria Freeman, the wife of televangelist “Baby” Billy Freeman, who abandoned her and their son in a pet store. She also stars in “Introducing Jodea,” a comedy about a struggling young actress whose fortunes change when a world-famous movie director drives into the back of her car. It’s available wherever you legally buy and download movies. She has a fascinating story. Born and raised in Zimbabwe, she is unable to return because she made a controversial documentary about the country’s former leader, Robert Mugabe.

Then, we’ll spend some time with Clare Pooley, the Cambridge educated author of “Iona Iverson’s Rules For Commuting.” After working in advertising for twenty years it dawned on her daily ‘wine o’clock’ habit was out of control. She wrote the popular “Mummy was a Secret Drinker” blog and a memoir, “The Sober Diaries,” published in 2017 to critical acclaim. Her debut novel, “The Authenticity Project,” was inspired by her life and her seemingly perfect facade. Her new novel, “Iona Iverson’s Rules For Commuting,” is an entertaining novel about unexpected friendships and the joy of connecting.
